Speaking at Microsoft Ignite 2019

Microsoft Ignite is less than a month away, and I’m excited to tell you about the sessions that I’ll be presenting!

11/1 Update: Here’s my schedule of sessions that I plan on attending.

Quickly ramp up SharePoint site owners

20 minute theater session

Thursday, November 7, 2019, 10:55 AM – 11:15 AM

SharePoint Team sites are easy to create, allowing business users to quickly get started collaborating. It’s a great idea to have site governance, and even a site provisioning plan in place. There are a few important fundamentals that new site owners need to know immediately, such as the difference between when to create a library or a page, and how to add web parts to the homepage. In this session, learn how to create a easily digestible tip sheet for new site owners, tap into already existing resources, and efficiently disperse this information to site owners.


Making the most of out-of-box approvals in SharePoint Online

45 minute breakout session

Friday, November 8, 2019, 9:00 AM – 9:45 AM

Do your SharePoint power users create approval processes for documents or forms? The approvals action in Microsoft Flow is an extremely useful and versatile action for these scenarios. The requirements of your workflows may range from simple to complex, and they all vary when it comes to flexibility and functionality. In this session, learn the capabilities of Microsoft Flow approvals, and how to successfully build your various business processes in SharePoint. For example, learn how to build parallel versus serial, one or many approvers, or escalate/reassign approvals when out-of-office.


Power Hour Live from Ignite!


Wednesday, November 6, 2019, 2:20 PM – 3:20 PM

Power Hour is a weekly YouTube show brought to you by IW Mentor and features Microsoft SharePoint MVP and blogger Laura Rogers, and her cohort Joelle Jobson. Each episode of Power Hour includes live demonstrations and discussions on topics including SharePoint, PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, and Microsoft Teams. Each of these technologies is covered, through the eyes of a power user or citizen developer. The Power Hour team builds robust solutions using these technologies without the need to write code, and looks to enable its audience to do the same. Join us live from Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, FL to hear all the latest updates coming out of the conference.


This live power hour won’t be a big production with a stage and everything like last year.  This year they made all of the podcasts much more minimal, with just a little sound booth to broadcast from.  So that’s why they also aren’t listing the locations in the schedule builder.  There is no place for an audience to sit.
